Design work on an interpretative center and restoration of the Cana Island Lighthouse near Baileys Harbor is moving forward. The Door County Facilities and Parks Department is working with Mayo Architects of Milwaukee on the engineering and architectural design documents for the planned interpretative center. Facilities and Parks Director Wayne Spitka says the county is also working with River Architects of LaCrosse on the restoration of the lighthouse.
The design process on both projects will help determine cost estimates. While Cana Island is a county park, all restoration and improvement work is being paid for through private fundraising.
